Accessing Progress databases in JAMS


Users can access a Progress database in JAMS by using the PowerShell Execution Method.

NOTE: If using a 32 bit DSN, users should select the PowerShell32 Execution Method.


The script below is an example of how PowerShell can be used to connect to a System DSN. This script can be customized to the user environment in order to access Progress databases.

#Include only the Connection string parameters you want to override from the system DSN settings
$connectstring = "DataSourceName=myDSN;HostName=myServerAddress;Database=myDataBase;LogonID=myUsername;Password=myPassword;PortNumber=2055;"
$conn = New-Object System.Data.Odbc.OdbcConnection($connectstring)
#Define the query
$sql = "select * from TableName"
#Open the connection
$cmd = New-Object system.Data.Odbc.OdbcCommand($sql,$conn)
$data = New-Object system.Data.Odbc.OdbcDataAdapter($cmd)
$Results = New-Object system.Data.datatable
$null = $data.fill($Results)
#Close the connection
#Return the results
